Brian Dunkleman And William Hung Returning For 'American Idol' Series Finale

She bangs! She bangs!

"American Idol" is really pulling out all the stops for its series finale. 

According to TMZ, Brian Dunkleman, the original co-host who left after Season 1, and William Hung, the contestant known for his not-so-great rendition of Ricky Martin's, "She Bangs," are both set to appear on the "Idol" stage for the show's final episode on Thursday night. 

The only thing that can make the trip down memory lane any better is an appearance by Sanjaya. (Fingers crossed!)

According to TMZ, Dunkleman will open the show and Hung will perform -- and hopefully sing "She Bangs." The site is also reporting that "Idol" is trying to bring back every past winner and most of the top three singers from all 15 seasons for one mega performance.

The show's original "Idol," Kelly Clarkson, will make an appearance via a pre-taped segment, as she's expecting her second child any day now. 

Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson are also reportedly set to return, because we all know it just wouldn't be the same without them. 

But before you say goodbye forever, you can watch a 90-minute special airing Tuesday night in which the judges and former contestants reflect on the series. On Wednesday night, the series' final top three will battle it out one last time. The rest of the madness goes down on Thursday night. It really is an end of an era. 

The two-hour "American Idol" series finale airs on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
